The Harwood Cottage At Historic Macon

Enter a world of Southern Charm and Northern Convenience.
2 reviews
Enter a world of Southern Charm and Northern Convenience.
Less than a mile from I-75 but nearly a century away.
A neighborhood rich with architectural treasures between Mercer & Wesleyan Universities.
From pre-game barbecues in the backyard...
Always a wide choice of bright, clean rooms to call home.
All with ready access to one of several private and well appointed baths.
If you haven't experienced Macon, Georgia; you haven't experienced The South.
Bring folks together and create a memorable dinner for six or sixty in our fully equipped kitchen.

We are new to the Trip Advisors and Flip Key Communities and are very excited to be here and join you. We are not new to the shared economy and home share community. In the 16 months since we first joined Airbnb, we've hosted nearly 1,000 guests through over 200 reservations. By travelers from Beijing to Dusseldorf and everywhere in between. We now have over 135 rousingly positive reviews from folks who have visited us and have made The Harwood Cottage one of the regions top host destination choices by travelers like you... looking for a warmer, friendlier, 'novel' experience... well beyond those ubiquitous eggshell colored double rooms.

Interaction with guests
At The Harwood Cottage, we make sure we only interact with guests at the level with which they are most comfortable. For our suites guests, owner and manager presence may appear higher than in the whole house rental simply because, the team stays in the main house throughout. In whole house rentals, an assumption of privacy exists, such that another family or group is actually taking up residence. In these cases, the team stays on the garden level of the mansion doing laundry and other chores. They actually physically lock themselves out. During these stays, the owner must literally ring the doorbell to gain entrance infrequently and only as needed.

Website description and photos show a beautifully restored home throughout; these pictures are used here and 3-4 other websites. Actual home is dirty and in disrepair. At Homeaway . com, this whole house has now dropped to $214 per night at (as of Dec 6, 17) because of reviews like on June 1, 2017, bed linens so filthy they slept “fully clothed” on top of bed. Same for us, all bedding in house and closet smelled old, was worn, some with stains, holes. Our bed had 6 stains, 2 were gross. We covered it, and slept on top. Another review complained about ceiling damage. We saw water damage in 5 rooms. It rained and roof leaked. Told owner who showed no interest; we put bucket under the dripping. Website picture of kitchen, looks spotless with new dishwasher, it is not. It’s very old and broken. Open door and unit fell out from wall, and dirty plates rolled out. Inside was stinky, stagnant water and food. Refrigerator crisper drawers held limp food in water. Coffee maker was broken (he...

Management response:

It is obvious that this person (not even sure if she was an actual paying guest or not), has been making the rounds on all the websites dying the meanest of things to close us down because we weren’t willing to take her psychotic behavior when she was here. As you can see she mentions all kinds of websites and...

We recently stayed at Harwood Cottage and it was a lovely experience. A wonderful ca.1920's house in a delightful neighborhood. John is the perfect host. We had the Sydney Suite but all of the rooms are lovely and furnished to a high standard.
Beautiful antiques are everywhere, each with their own story which John is very willing to share with you. The continental style, self serve breakfast is thoughtfully selected.
Thanks again John,
Steve and Susie

Thank you both for a lovely stay! It was wonderful having you! John

About the neighbourhood
Just a few doors down is The Allman Brothers' ‘Big House Museum' which you can tour daily from 10am to 6pm.. You never know who might be playing out in the gazebo there! Vineville is also home to what is arguably the region's best pizza (Ingleside Pizza), the Georgia School for the Blind, the site of the Confederate Munitions Testing Laboratories, A pair of massive live oaks planted from acorns in 1830 and one of the best French Restaurants this side of Les Halles (The Back Burner). We were recently featured on an episode of TLC's “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'. My list of Macon ‘must sees' includes: The Hay House Museum (The Palace of The South), The Mansions Along College Avenue from Mercer University to Riverside Drive, The Grand Old Opera House, The Ochmulgee Natio... more
